Our vet doesn't use any other kinds apparently. I called to check. I'm not a fan of Royal Canin but it's the only thing he can eat right now (when he actually eats) that doesn't give him diarrhea or make him sick. I feel like I'm in between a rock and a hard place.
The other reason he's on this food is that he may have EPI and his body isn't sending out enough enzymes to break down protein which is causing the diarrhea so we're trying this stuff out. The vet explained that the food broken down from the protein and vegetable and fruit material into something else that is easier to handle and his body can process it that way. I don't really understand it all.
